since there is no key to turn the old lock cylinder to turn it ti run and push the release

you need to visually hold the new lock cylinder up to the old one and see visually where abouts the release would be then mark the area on the ignition lock case then use an 1/8 drill bit and drill a hold down the outer lock case then push in through the hold with a pick or aleen wrench and the old one should release to be removed

its the only way to get it out

here is a picture of the stock hole if you could turn it ti run to release the cylinder
